The Blue Tattoo
The Life of Olive OatmanBook - 2009
Tells the harrowing story of this forgotten heroine of frontier America. Orphaned when her family was brutally killed by Yavapai Indians, Oatman lived as a slave to her captors for a year before being traded to the Mohave, who tattooed her face and raised her as their own. She was fully assimilated and happy when, at nineteen, she was ransomed back to white society.
